I'm well-aware that Soviet propaganda completely changed its orientation after the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact, starting a much more positive portrayal of the Nazis in many aspects up until the German invasion, even censoring antifascist literature and such*. Did something similar happen in Germany with regards to their portrayal of the USSR, or were these "feelings" not mutual?
*There're various sources for this, e.g. in the 2nd volume of "Russen und Deutsche in der Zwischenkriegszeit" (Eimermacher, Volpert, Bordjugow, also published in Russian). Also something related I didn't find a source for but would be interested in verifying is a claim on Russian wiki page of Yuri Levitan (and on some pro-Soviet Russian blog, which is strange since I would expect to see such a thing in anti-Soviet sources) that he announced Rommel's victories in North Africa on radio (and even announced his victory in the battle of Gazala on 22 of June, 15 minutes before Molotov's announcement about the invasion of USSR). While I couldn't find a source for this specific claim, it's not that unbelievable given what I described above about Soviet propaganda in 1939-1941.
